Ill-advised self-interaction contribution in modelling anionic attack along a reaction path

Abstract : It is shown that modelling a catalytic reaction involving an atomic anion, such as iodide, may lead to unrealistic reaction paths because of the underestimation of the anion energy. The self-interaction error, at the origin of this feature is enhanced by the fact that electronic delocalisation, usually overestimated in DFT calculations, cannot occur in a single atom. The quantification of this error is approached by a linear transit calculation, from a transition state towards separate fragments. This is an efficient way to correct this error for GGA functionals. Interestingly the self-interaction error is shown to be less dependent of the Hartree-Fock exchange amount in hybrid functionals than expected. Unexpectedly, no significant improvement with long-range corrected functionals is obtained.
